never trust a person from pet smart, a guy from the forum had recently been told by a pet-smart worker to put LIVE SEA SAND into a FRESHWATER betta tank.
I think you will find better advice in private pet stores as the people there are less likely to deceive you.
good thing that all the pet shops here are honest and do care for the fish. :P
You probably should tune the bubbler down or remove it as betta don't like water movement on the surface, as they live in shallow stagnant ponds in the wild.
best thing is to get a filter, tune the flow down with a baffler and point it towards the bottom.
